Our Friday Favorite this week comes to us from Brian Cushing, a Regency period re-enactor who gives workshops and talks about gentlemen’s dress in the early 19th century. This video is taken from his demonstration at Burdett’s Tea Shoppe in Springfield, TN. Mr. Cushing begins with the outermost layer of clothing and works his way inward, explaining the function and development of each piece as he goes–great for those of you who like visual aides!
Do you ever find modern men’s fashion lacking? Like your men in cravats and frock coats, or doublets and hose? Then this week’s Friday Favorite is for you! It’s a fan video with clips from a whole bunch of period dramas featuring all the best in historical menswear, accompanied by Jo Dee Messina’s cover of Sharp Dressed Man.
I tagged a few of the gentlemen in question–can you identify the rest?
